USB Wireless Drivers with Longsleep Linux Kernel
#1
Let me preface this by saying I am a newbie so if I'm missing something easy here or my attempted solutions don't make sense, I apologize in advance.

I am trying to hook up a TP-Link TL-WN725N Wifi USB to my Pine64.  I attempted to download the driver I need but cannot run a `make all` on it.  It looks like the driver I need is rtl8188eu which I got here:

https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu

Looking into the error I get:

"No rule to make target `modules'. Stop."

when trying to run make all it appears to be because i need to run 

"apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)" but this command won't work for Longsleep's custom Kernel build.

Perhaps I can try running "apt-get install linux-headers-generic"

I can see in the kernel drivers (/lib/modules/xxxx/kernel/net/wireless) on the OS there are many drivers installed, closes to what I need being rtl8187.

I have three ideas for solutions but am looking for some guidance/suggestions.

My ideas are:

1) get a wifi dongle that works with one of the installed drivers OR
2) try "apt-get install linux-headers-generic" and run "make all" again OR
3) compile the driver on a VM on my Mac and copy it over to the pine64 (I have no idea if that would work at all but though, why not try)

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!
